Yes we are we left Texas on April 25th heading to William Kent Camp Ground just South of Tahoe City Califorina on Lake Tahoe Where we will be God willing untill The last of Sept 2013. We will be at The William Kent Camp Ground.
Our trip cross country has been both fun and eventful the first day as we were stopping for the day while pulling into the abilene RV park we blew out one of the tires on the 5th wheel.
- Darn side wall of the tire just blew right out
Thanks to Good Samsroad service who came out and put the spare on while we were eating supper.
Santa Rosa State Park NM
The next evening we stayed at the Santa Rosa State Park New Mexico. We reall had a great nights rest here I think it was the first night we had sleep with out some noise( generator running, or pipes banging at the drilling rig ) in 6 Months and I must say it was really enjoyable. We could also enjoy some fishing here if we had the time. http://www.campsitephotos.com/campground/Santa-Rosa-Lake-State-Park
My Darling wife at the Crater
From Santa Rosa State Park we moved on to the Meteor Crater RV park at Winslow AZ. Where we enjoyed two nights and the views of the crater where a Meteor struck this lovely place some 50,000 years ago. Departed here on 4-29-2013. still have not located a tire for the 5th wheel. Called a tire dealer in Kingman AZ and they said that they have a tire the size we need.
Arrived at hte tire center in Kingman Az. And while backing into the Maintenance bay for the young fellow to change the flat and put the spare back on the rack the guy that was spotting me into position noticed that both tires on the left side of the 5th wheel had seperated and had the tread split some 4 to 6 inches.
- One of the split tire treads caused by wall seperation
( OH CRAP) this scared me bad for the past 2 or 3 days I had been running 70 to 75 miles per hour on some of the roughest roads in the country. Well any way 1 tire change turned into 4 tires at a cost of just shy of $1800.00. we got back on the road about 11:30 heading on to
RV Park at Nellis AFB< Las Vegas NV where we spent 2 wonderful nights.
Desert Eagle RV Park at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas NV. Where we plan to spend Monday and Tuesday nights and then head on toward Our destination. On Tuesday we went to the Petro truck stop to fuel up the truck so it will be ready for the run tomorrow and if you have never eaten at a Iron Skillet restaurant in their truck stops I would say you arwe missing some good eats. https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=petro+truck+stop+las+vegas&fb=1&gl=us&hq=petro+truck+stop&hnear=0x80beb782a4f57dd1:0x3accd5e6d5b379a3,Las+Vegas,+NV&view=text&ei=VCuAUfD8KrD0iwLFtYDQDQ&ved=0CDQQtQM
